Back In The Saddle Again!

Well its only took over a month to sort out, but we have finally been reconnected back to civilization.......oh how I have missed you broadband.

Things have taken a slight change of direction, but only in the fact that we have realised that to stand any chance of making our Alpaca business succeed, we needed to up the number of Elite Alpacas in our core herd.

We have made some very hard and certainly not easy decisions over the last few days, but we feel that we have done our best to make sure that we purchased our Alpacas from reputable breeders, who certainly share our determination and importance of keeping strict Bio-security within the herds. So with this in mind we will only purchase from breeders with like minds, this reducing the risk of any disease brought onto our farm.

We can only hope that the decision we have made to start our Alpaca business are the correct ones, we only get one shot of doing this and we have to make some serious sacrifices to be able to have any chance in succeeding.

On a lighter note, does anyone know of a 3 berth, double glazed, central heating static caravan as you just can't seem to find them for love nor money, this is one sacrifice we don't really want to have to change as it would not be far on our daughter Lily who is 2!!

Take care folks.

  1. That is a very wise decision, choosing top quality alpacas from breeders who like you and I take bio-security very seriously.

    Next you will have to make the fantastic decisions about which studs to use. We are awaiting the first drop from our own three fantastic studs this year and I can't wait to see the outcome.
